Personalized party favors are preferably opted for a corporate party. Glass articles can be implemented in any theme. The costs of gifts vary as per the budget of the party host.

Invaluable party favors are brought out with relatively small cost by taking these steps. The party favors can stand out as precious mementos to the guests, if the creativity is put to use. The cute souvenirs and trinkets cost a very small amount, giving the guests, a memorable and joyous time at the party.

The groom's traditional duties

Some of these may no longer be solely the groom's responsibility; for
instance, the modern bride will probably want to have a say in the honeymoon
plans and participate more actively in the toasts/speeches.

"Choose your wedding party" (best man and ushers).
Organize your family's part of the guest list.

Organize and pay for the marriage license.

Buy thank-you gifts for the best man and ushers

Organize the Bachelor Party

Make sure the best man has the checks, in envelopes, to be given to the

officiator, the musicians, and anyone else rendering a service to be paid for

immediately after the ceremony.

Get to the wedding ceremony on time.

In the receiving line, stand at your bride's left and accept congratulations graciously and with brevity.

Invitations Mail

The groom is usually the second person to propose a toast. After the master of
ceremonies has toasted the bride and groom, the groom rises, thanks the MC, and
then proposes a toast to his bride. He also responds to toasts to the bridal
couple. (For complete information on toasts, go to the Toast Points section.)
Cut the cake with your bride. (The groom usually holds the cake knife, with his
bride's hand poised on top of his.)

 Join your bride for the first dance, then dance with

various relations: first your mother-in-law, then your mother. (After that, as
you dance with the maid of honor, the best man should dance with the bride, and
the ushers should join in with the bridesmaids.)

Wedding Vows:

No wedding is complete without wedding vows. Wedding is one of the most celebrated, most sacred and most important occasions. Wedding vows mark the blissful unity of woman and man with words of promise. They are the words of commitment that are an essence of the wedding ceremony. Most people believe that selection of wedding vows is the easiest part involved in the wedding occasion. Nevertheless, most couples come to realize about the importance of wedding vows on the day when they are meant to be taken.

Wedding vows are the expressions of the heart. The verses related to wedding vows are meaningful, unique and romantic. Most prospective couples normally decide on writing the vows on their own. Hence, while jotting down the words meant for vows, couples need to ensure that most of the content of the vows need to be interesting and pleasing for everyone. This would keep the wedding guests remain connected and attentive to the wedding ceremony. Since wedding vows are meant to be spoken from the heart, the words included in them indicate the reason as to why couples want to spend the rest of the life with their partners. Couples can either bring a copy of wedding vows with them or memorize them.

Some couples in the hope of preserving their vows, store their exclusive verses and keep a copy to frame it. Elegant wedding vows convey the essence of wedding in the truest sense.

Religious Wedding Vows:

Each religion supports the union of a woman and man tied together in a wonderful bond of marriage. Wedding ceremonies of religious tint are perfect occasions for the couples to assure their commitment to one another before God. Religious wedding vows offer faith and most couples feel that, getting married in the temple or the church gives a special meaning to their wedding vows.

The main focal points of the entire ceremony of religious marriage are the wedding vows. The tradition of wedding vows is different for different religions.

Some of the important religious wedding vows are mentioned below:

Muslim Wedding Vows: - Islamic wedding vows are mostly ceremonious in nature, wherein the bride has to give her assent to the marriage by saying yes thrice in front of the Qazi or the priest.

Christian Wedding Vows: - Christian wedding vows mostly reflect the couple’s mutual values. The importance of Christian wedding vows is observed in the orthodox wedding ceremony that usually occurs in the church. The process of betrothal mostly begins near the church entrance, wherein the bride stands to the left and the groom stands to the right. Then, the priest blesses thrice to the groom and the bride and provides lighted candles to them, which they need to hold till the service ends. These candles represent the love of god and the warmth of their faith. Even within Christianity, the manner in which wedding vows are administered by the priest to the couple does differ. However, the practice of the exchange of vows remains all the same within such traditions.

Simple Wedding Vows:
Simple wedding vows form the basics of marriage. Wedding vows set the tone in case of simple wedding. The vows exchanged by the couples remain unique to their relationship.

In simple wedding vows, the bridegroom and the bride either decide on the standard wedding vow at the ceremony. The couples that have a creative bent of mind try their hands on something different for the most special occasion of their life. In case, the couples are romantic in nature and want to embark on a unique wedding at their home towns, then they can go on for the option of exchanging the wedding vows with their beloved in the language of that area.

For instance, if the wedding ceremony occurs at a Hawaii beach, then they have the choice of exchanging their vows in a Hawaiian language. In some resorts and hotels in Hawaii, couples can exchange their wedding vows for a very nominal fee. The ceremony of administering of the vows would be solemnized in Hawaiian language by a Hawaiian priest.

On the whole, wedding vows are the special words of commitment and togetherness that each and every couple has to pledge once in their lives.

To start with, you will need a completed guest list. The size of the guest
list will mainly depend on your budget. After you have estimated the number of
people you can afford to invite, each of you (and your family) can invite half
of that total to the wedding. You can make up a list of all your close friends
and family members who must positively be invited, and then make up another list
of all your other friends, associates, etc. If cutting is necessary, you can
start the hard decision with the second list of people.

Once you have a final guest list, you can make a decision on what invitation
components you would like, and what kind of wording you should use. With these
things in mind, you can go to a reputable stationer to order. Once you choose,
you should add about twenty-five or thirty extra to the total when ordering or
making your invitations and envelopes. The extras are for the unexpected,
last-minute guests, or possible mistakes that may be made when writing or
printing them up.
t's always a good idea to do things early so there will be less hassles as your
wedding day approaches. Sending your invitations out at least one or two months
before your wedding date will allow your friends and families ample time in
their busy schedules to keep that day marked on their calendars as especially
for you. This should also allow you enough time to receive responses from your
guest list and coordinate your arrangements with the church, wedding hall, caterers, or
whomever. The good thing about getting early refusals is that you should still
have enough time to immediately send invitations to anyone you may have cut from
your initial list because of budgeting.
        Therefore, make sure that if you are having your invitations printed and double
check the wording on all your invitations, allow the printers at least two or three
months before you wish to send them out. This is because printers take time to
fill your order (you may be last on their list!). Timeliness is also important
if you are creating your own invitation cards. Don't wait until the last minute
to make your own cards, envelopes, and then off to printing our invitation
For many people, traditional invitations are very important, but if you know
that your friends and family wouldn't mind a non-traditional invitation (perhaps
something more unique or personal) so long as they get something that gives them
the name, date, time and place, then by all means do as you wish. This is your
wedding after all!
